Make Them Visible

on April 25, 2014 by Tim Comments

This social experiment tested if New Yorkers had become blind to the homeless who are forced to live on the streets. What if those we walk past every day were family members – siblings, spouses, and relatives – all dressed to appear homeless? The ones we claim to care about the most? Would you even notice them?

iPhone 5 + Tumblr = new Apple campaign

on April 20, 2014 by Ana Comments

Apple notoriously doesn’t do social media. So imagine my shock when I saw this. Apple choose nothing less than Tumblr to launch a campaign for its iPhone 5C. The campaign sports the “Every color has a story” (aww) headline and features 15-second video ads.

Have you seen the poaching phone?

on April 20, 2014 by Ana Comments

If not, this means that you are quite happy with what you do.

Because, if you weren’t, apparently, you’d be browsing the career advice ad industry section in a bookstore and you may have found a phone inside one of the books. The phone would have had only one number in it. That would be the number that would have led you to your next adventure.

In an incredibly proactive move, Dubai ad agency FP7 has done exactly that: it sent the books with the phone in them to ad creatives they wanted to attract and it placed them into bookstores with titles appealing to the talent the agency wanted to attract.

The word is that the campaign was quite successful and that it resulted in amazing new employees, saving the agency about $80K in recruiter fees. Or you can just post an ad on Digiday Jobs.

The invisible advertising is born with the First Kiss

on April 20, 2014 by Ana Comments

The “First Kiss” video gets me every time. It doesn’t matter that, in addition to being the first kiss among two strangers, it is also a very very clever ad for a clothing company Wren. The video has gotten a considerable traction on YouTube (79 million views and counting).

Love both the idea and the execution. If people are excited about invisible technology, why shouldn’t they be excited about invisible advertising??

Siri creators want you to know how many calories there are in your Instagram photos

on April 20, 2014 by Ana Comments

No joke. Siri creators created some sort of image recognition technology to tell you the amount of calories in the food you just took photo of. The calorie estimate is based on two factors: the volume of food and the food identification, i.e. what you’re eating and how much of it.

Self-heating bus stations, thanks to Duracell

on April 20, 2014 by Ana Comments

Winters are cold in Canada. This is why Duracell made a bus shelter that heats up when everyone waiting for a bus holds their hands. Aww.

Aside of creating the “we are the world” moment, Duracell successfully demonstrated the power of its products. That’s what brands are here for, ya?

Chanels goes grocery shopping

on April 20, 2014 by Ana Comments

The high-low combo in fashion was never as evident as at the recent Chanel’s fashion show placed in the supermarket. The setting infused a much-needed life into the fashion shows, which have recently become quite a drab affairs. It also spoke to the inevitability of grocery shopping among the audience, no matter how fashion-obsessed and brand-crazy they are.
